3-Ingredient Bacon-Wrapped Pickles (Easy Keto Snack Idea)
Say hello to your new go-to keto snack!
I’ll be honest, fried pickles are already amazing as they are, but let’s turn them up a few notches by adding some… bacon!
I just made these incredible bacon-wrapped pickles and I swear, I couldn’t put them on the plate fast enough before my boys had dibs on all of them.
This keto-friendly appetizer is requested weekly, which is completely fine with me since they only have 1 net carb per spear, and they’re so good. Better yet, they crisp up quickly in the air fryer so they’re ready in a flash with minimal mess!
Hip Recipe Tips:
- If you do not own an air fryer, you can absolutely make these in your oven at 425 degrees baked for 20 minutes. I would add a rack to your baking sheet and place the spears on top so the grease can drip down, helping your bacon get nice and crispy.
- Usually, with fried pickles, you would want to remove the excess liquid with a paper towel but for this recipe, you’ll want to leave the pickles juicy as is — the pickle juice helps act as a glue for the pork rinds!
- These bacon-wrapped pickles are great just by themselves, but my boys loved dipping them into our favorite keto ranch dip.

Bacon-wrapped pickles are a keto crowd pleaser!
Anything with bacon is basically a win, but bacon-wrapped around pickles is a WIN-WIN! I love how simple this snack comes together with just pickle spears, pork rind crumbs, and strips of bacon. YUM!
